i-Dmag_bimonthly_announcement.jpgFear not fans of i-D magazine. It isn't all over red rover for your favourite British fashion title, it is simply switching to bi-monthly production. The decision to scale back from 11 to six issues per year is yet another effect of the downward economy.

"We thought the best way of keeping the product strong was to bring out three issues a season," said i-D's founder, Terry Jones. "We didn't want to do what other magazines have done, such as drop the quality of the paper. In order to keep going in the current climate, we've made the decision to do six issues a year."

i-D's June issue will mark its 300th. It will then publish an August edition on July 9, and from September it will then publish six issues a year. The change will also include improvements to their website, which will relaunch in the summer and be updated more frequently.

"I don't believe that print can be substituted [by the Internet]. I have ideas about the way i-D can use the web and have the same impact as we do with print," Jones added.
